Liquefied natural gas bunkering coalition SEA\LNG said that the Nordic LNG supplier Skangass has joined its growing roster of 34 members.
Skangas brings industry knowledge of LNG production and sourcing, and the construction of key LNG infrastructure for marine deliveries, from land-based infrastructure to LNG bunkering vessels.
Among its fleet is the bunkering vessel Coralius, which conducts ship-to-ship operations primarily in the North and Baltic Seas, SEA\LNG noted in its statement.
The Coralius is one of six LNG bunkering vessels currently in operation, three of which have been commissioned by SEA\LNG members, while another 13 are in development.
Kimmo Rahkamo, CEO of Skangas, said, “Ship-to-ship bunkering is central to supporting the maritime industry’s interest in using LNG as a marine fuel, the flexibility of the operations allows vessels to access LNG at higher transfer rates in a vastly expanded geographic area.”
SEA\LNG unites key industry players from major LNG suppliers, downstream companies, shipping companies, infrastructure providers, and shipyards, to OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), classification societies, port authorities, shipbrokers, and financial institutions, to address the commercial barriers to LNG, particularly in the deep-sea shipping segment.
